Name:DBA and walkover survey - Dunmaglass Wind Farm, Strathnairn
Organisation:CFA Archaeology Ltd
Date:Apr-May 2003

Description

A DBA and walk-over survey was carried out by CFA Archaeology Ltd in 2003 in advance of a proposed wind farm development at Dunmaglass, Strathnairn. At this time both the wind farm development area and access road corridor were assessed. Thirty archaeological sites were identified within the proposed site boundary. These sites were all of medieval or later rural settlement date. The individual sites were considered to be component parts of an integrated and well preserved pre-Clearance settlement system. One Category B Listed Building lay within 10km of the turbines and was predicted to receive an indirect impact. Mitigation measures were considered to propose an acceptable level of impact that would not be in conflict with the aims of national, regional and local planning policy in regards to cultural heritage. <1>
